How to make own Uber for Barbers App?

Simple Service App to Make Barbers Appointments for Haircut

Haircutting service is on-demand all year round. It is a stable business and its market grows along with the cities’ population. Still, life is speeding up. People are constantly moving from one city to another and don’t have much time to find a suitable barber to make a haircut. The times when a man visited one barbershop for 30 years is gone.

Making an uber for hair cutting is a great idea if you’re a modern entrepreneur that keeps an eye on trends and feels the pulse of life. Connect barbers and clients in an easiest and straightforward way – through the mobile app. Uber for barbers is a simple and straightforward example of an on-demand mobile app. Surely, it won’t become a billion-dollar venture but can become a stable revenue stream.

App idea:

I would like to create an app similar to the app “Shortcut” which is only located in New York. I would have our local salons and barber shops register with the app creating their unique profile with services offered, prices, and credentials.

How to start Development process?

To start development with an outsourcing team, you must give yourself the answer to such questions:
1) Would you like to have the same functionality as Shortcut App has at the moment? Or you are comfortable to start with less for 1st release?
2) Do you have any access to the admin panel of Shortcut?
3) How would you like to monetize the app?
4) Do you have any limited budget or deadlines for this project?
